The AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E Encoder is the audio processing and downmixing cousin to our standard-issue AC-MXNET-1G-E Encoder. As with our standard Encoder, this is where the signal starts. However, the AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E Encoder was specifically designed to integrate with multi-zone stereo/mono audio mixing systems. The AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E Encoder employs a specialized audio processor chipset that can accept and decode Dolby ATMOS, DTS-HD, and other lossless audio formats - and output those signals as stereo through the provided balanced stereo terminal block on the unit.
Connect the MXNet 1G AVDM to any HDMI source, and it will encode the audio/video signal into a multicast data format that can be routed to any Decoder endpoint within the project/installation. As outlined above, it will also decode Dolby ATMOS, DTS-HD, and other lossless audio formats for connecting to a whole home or other distributed audio system. This device connects directly via category wires (CAT 6A recommended) or fiber optics to the MXNet Switch (AC-MXNET-SW48 or SW24) and any other compatible multicast capable managed L3 network switch. The AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E Encoder is a part of the MXNet Ecosystem of AV-over-IP products from AVPro Edge.
The AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E will encode a full 4K 4:4:4 60Hz HDMI video signal - along with audio, control, power, and HDR metadata signals. These signals are passed to single or multiple Decoder endpoints via multicast routing through an MXNet or multicast compatible L3 managed network switch. And, it does all this with next to zero latency. MXNet Encoders encode audio/video/control signals into IP packets using an optimized JPEG2000 codec at a flexible data rate (200Mbps for 1080p content, 300Mbps for 4K30 content, 850Mbps at peak). The AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E Encoder also supports stand-alone point-to-point applications when connected directly to an AC-MXNET-1G-D Decoder.
The AC-MXNET-1G-AVDM-E Encoder is only one part of the MXNet Ecosystem that includes Encoders, Network Switches, Control Processors, and other various components designed to facilitate the building of a custom A/V distribution system. MXNet's Ecosystem includes formatting such as resolution scaling, full EDID management, HDR and Dolby Vision metadata, multifaceted video walls, and includes the MXNet Mentor setup and control tool - making installations easy on the integrator, while also presenting a major WOW factor for your client.
